Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man, revealed that he will consider buying another football club if Premiership club, Arsenal, would not be sold to him.
Dangote has made this known during an interview with Bloomberg TV at the New Economy Forum in Singapore.
He said: “By the time we’ve finished the world’s biggest oil refinery in Lagos, we’ll be a $30bn company in terms of revenue.
“We’ll have an excess amount of cash to start playing around with to buy Arsenal.
“I’m very attached to Arsenal but if he won’t sell, I might have to change. I’m very much a fan of football. I’ll like to have a club. I don’t have to own Arsenal.”
